Join me for our LAST after work paddle from Azalea Park this season. We will be paddling UPSTREAM first to get the harder stuff out of the way. YOU MAY NEED A LIGHT SOURCE!!! We might be paddling in fading light so if you're not comfortable with that, please don't sign up.

We did this paddle a few weeks ago in the pouring rain, but while it was raining 90% of the time it was awesome 100% of the time, so forgot the 70% chance and join us. Note: while we're starting earlier..we did need our stern lights at the last 2 miles of the paddle due to rain and lower be prepared. We also did the harder "up stream" effort first and put the cruise control on for the trip home.

IF the flow is over 10,000cf/s we might cancel.If the flow is normal or around 800-2,000 cf/s we should be ok...that should be good for anyone that has paddling experience. You will be paddling the entire time, it's still a workout. Show up a little early to unload, do your paddle pre-check, get in the water and we'll do a quick briefing & intros just off the ramp (IN THE WATER) in/on the water at 3:45 p.m.

ANTI-RAIN dance if necessary! Because we paddle in everything except thunderstorms...bring a spray skirt if you have one :P
